Opinions held by people with mental illness are so often poo-pooed or accompanied with condescending pats on the head that eventually said-opinions are never made.
And the silence grows.

Sometimes I have to remind myself that with this blog I’m not complaining, I’m explaining.
Bottom line: Speak, even if you’re the only one willing to listen.
